More than 250 businesses, both domestic and international will take part in the 16th Vietnam International Textile and Garment Industry Exhibition (VTG 2016) at the Saigon Exhibition and Convention Center from November 23 to 26. VTG 2016 is considered to be a good opportunity for suppliers and manufacturers in the sector to meet others in the field.
Besides domestic firms, exhibitors from Thailand, Singapore, Japan, Hong Kong, Germany, Italy, South Korea, India, Indonesia, Bangladesh, Taiwan and China are expected to showcase their machinery, equipment and materials for the textile and garment sector in nearly 500 stalls in the exhibition. Compared to last year, the stall area of VTG 2016 will be 80 per cent bigger as there will be more exhibitors including machines and equipment manufacturers for weaving, automated fabric cutting, yarn spinning, dyeing, embroidery and knitting, chemicals, machinery for printing patterns on fabric and garment accessories.
Pham Xuan Hong, chairman of the HCMC Association of Garment- Textile-Embroidery-Knitting (AGTEK), said that companies in the sector have high demand for advanced technologies to raise their output to compete with imported products. Hence, the exhibition will be an opportunity for them to find what they want.
